Collections and Connections

I am off on an adventure in Key West today and will let you know how it goes!

In the meantime I wanted to share a few collections and connections that have come my way recently.

While enjoying a celebratory gathering recently a friend and I admired some of our hostesses collections.

pretty pressed leaves…


loved this vignette full of treasures…


as we admired her shell encrusted planter my friend recalled another shell creation that caught her eye on a recent trip to Charleston…


shell covered dress form spotted by my friend…


she also sent me a photo of the orchids she spotted on the same trip…


appropriate since the flower of the month for January was the orchid!

which then reminded me of another orchid share from a different friend…


these were all sent from her January trip to Carmel…




collections and connections are welcomed anytime here OPP

a recent Diamond Gates Jack Russell Terriers collection…

  1. I wish I had better luck with orchids. Mine do not last long at all. Love all the pics! Especially the last one!
